SCQR Case Studies
Case studies are sent out periodically to SCQRs as part of continued training and education. It is highly recommended that all SCQRs participate in reviewing and completing the case studies. Case study discussions are used to identify content for future MSQC educational offerings.
The MSQC Forum is an email-based discussion group intended for SCQRs to discuss and exchange ideas, experiences, opinions and questions related to MSQC’s mission, including, but not limited to, quality improvement initiatives, best practice, and general operational issues.
All SCQRs will be added to the MSQC Forum automatically. Forum membership is limited to SCQRs and MSQC’s Coordinating Center staff only.
The MSQC Forum works just like regular email. Use your regular email service provider to send, receive, read and reply to MSQC Forum messages.
To send a message to the MSQC Forum, simply use the email address email@example.com in your email’s “To:” field. When you send a message to this email address, it will be automatically sent to all members.
